Guidelines for Controlling Infections | Halyard Health

HAI's stands for healthcare-associated infections and they are infections that occur while receiving health care. An estimated 1.7 million Americans each year suffer from an infection they get while in a healthcare facility. Patients with medical devices (central lines, urinary catheters, ventilators) or who undergo surgical procedures are unfortunately at risk of acquiring HAIs.

These infections can have devastating emotional, financial, and medical effects on both the patient and the facility. Worst of all, they can be deadly. HAIs occur in all types of care settings, including:

• Acute care hospitals

• Ambulatory surgical centers

• Dialysis facilities

• Outpatient care (e.g., physicians' offices and health care clinics)

• Long-term care facilities (e.g., nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities)

 Healthcare procedures and settings can leave you vulnerable to germs that cause HAIs but don’t fret it, research suggests that many healthcare acquired infections are preventable. Germs are often spread in healthcare settings from patient to patient on the unclean hands of healthcare personnel or through the improper use or reuse of equipment. Infection prevention starts with the basics.
